Israeli Sports Channel's motor sports broadcasters report from the IDF tank competition at the Golan Heights, April 2018. Competitors represent their brigades, including some reserve ones, equipped with Merkava Mk. 2s, 3s and 4s.

At 2:00 in the video, Yom Kippur War veterans (invited to watch the competition) are interviewed. When asked what tank did they hated driving the most, they mention the M48A2C and the Sherman.

Tank on tank

Any further info on this?

T-72/64 caught looking at their 9 o'clock while advancing, while a drone guides a t-72B3  into a firing position using thermals. T-72B3 has a huge advantage combined with the overhead view. Reported this is how they D/L milita operate currently.

How are you able to identify the tank types? The footage is so blurry... they do both look like T72's of some stripe, but thats about it.

Also, thermals aren't necessarily used here....the target is point blank on a clear day.

Was that a HEAT type of round?

Seems like about 80% of what they are firing over there is HE, very few APFSDS are loded. Seems like HE is adequate for killing T-xx tanks (and probably others too) most of the time, and otherwise the preferred munition for infantry support or even indirect fire.

Well, one could say all tanks there are T-72's, and would be correct to a certian extent, just varaints  :)

There is another vid of this engagment that is a bit (not much) clearer, and a short discription of said event. You may be mistaken on the thermals, many vids of thermals from drones, ground mounts atgms, T tanks etc.and, in various wave lengths in the visable spectrum. The purple device looks strange, but works.My guess, different manufactures.
